UNIVERS

Dry white wine

Univers is the entrance to our “Universe”, fresh, saline and elegant; pure “palomino” grape. Its grapes come from the lower area of our best vineyard, “La Platera”, with clay-limestone soils of “albariza” and “lustrillos”. Its salinity and purity stand out, due to the fermentation in the old champenoise tanks made of solid steel. The young vineyard highlights the salinity and the plot shows subtle hydrocarbons and powder, aromas associated with large “albariza pago”.

Jancis Robinson MW (Financial Times)

“It is tempting to wonder which wines currently being launched on the market may develop massive reputations, and even become cult wines. I would like to nominate the Andalusian wines of Muchada-Léclapart“.

Luis Gutierrez – Robert Parker – (Spain)

“I loved the 2017 Lumière, that somehow made me think of the white topped-up wines from Jean-François Ganevat in the Jura, with a superb palate, round and balanced.”

Sarah Jeans Evans. Master of Wine (England)

“The bonus (of Lumière 2018) is that without the usual influence of flor or solera, you can taste the terroir…. A delicately honeyed wine with drifts of jasmine and a clean, saline finish“.

Rene Langdahl. Wine journalist (Denmark)

“Can one describe a landscape, a mood, best by meticulous and naturalistic artistic reproduction? I doubt it, but they are impressionists. They have transferred the insane glare from chalk-white soils under a cloudless but seagull-subdued sky and saline sea breezes to the bottle.”

Julia Harding. Master of Wine (England)

“2018 Lumière is incredibly long and satisfying. Even with so much intrigue and complexity, the fruit is lovely. Persistent, tantalising finish. I’m grasping for words…”

James Goode. Wine journalist (England)

2018 Lumière is Such concentration here with a lovely mineral streak and notes of crystalline lemons, a slight salinity, and a bright acid line under everything. Has great concentration and precision.”
